    Good, indeed excellent preaching may not result in a church growing numerically. In fact, the opposite may result, it may decrease numerically.

    I once heard a preacher say, "If they want a large church I can put on a dog and pony show and people will flock to it. But that is not what real church is about."

    Absolutely amen!!

    I saw this the other day and loved what Mark Dever had to say about the idea of looking at numbers to measure your success.
